Safe Inside Yourself - This is a TEDx talk by my first coach, mentor, friend, and special guest for next week’s work, Cynthia Loy Darst.

Taming Your Gremlin - This is a completely updated edition of the 1983 classic that introduced a powerful method for gaining freedom from self-defeating behaviors and beliefs. Rick Carson, creator of the renowned Gremlin-Taming™ Method, has revised the book to include fresh interactive activities, real-life vignettes we can all identify with, and new loathsome gremlins ripe for taming. Carson blends his laid-back style, Taoist wisdom, the Zen Theory of Change, and sound psychology in an easy-to-understand, unique, and practical system for banishing the nemesis within. Among the things you will learn are:

  • Techniques for getting a sliver of light between the natural you and the monster of your mind.

  • The extraordinary power of simply noticing and playing with options.

  • Six keys to maintaining emotional balance amid upheaval.
